My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Inc., Detroit, MI, USA
My family was able to help stock the shelves at one of the Gleaner's Pantry locations. I like the fact that the people that are served by Gleaners get to pick their food and go shopping for a more dignified and less wasteful approach to distribution. They can take their kids and feel like they are in a normal grocery store. It was a good experience for my family/children to stock the shelves with some of the items we donated and get a sense for the limited meals that needy families would be eating. The volunteer staff that assisted us was fantastic in making the experience meaningful.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
warm and kind and went out of their way to make the experience meaningful to both volunteers and recipients of the charity.
Ways to make it better...
we had more time to stay and stock shelves.
